Catholic Mass prayers and responses - set out as a one page, printable sheet

This is a one-sheet-of-paper (ie two A4 page) card with the responses and prayers said by people attending a Roman Catholic Mass in the English language.

The prayers from the welcome, penetential rite, readings and creed are on one side, and from the Eucharistic prayer, Our Father, Communion and dismissal are on the other.

The contents are from the English translation of The Roman Missal © 2010, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc, as distributed by the Irish Roman Catholic Bishops conference.   These materials are freely distributed, to be used in line with the general provision to make these texts available for worship purposes.

Parts of the Mass which are different every day (eg the psalm, the readings, the antiphons, hymns) are not included.

Using these Catholic Mass response cards

These pages are designed to be printed back to back, and laminated together into one card.  They were originally designed for school children attending Mass in class-groups.   But they may have other uses in a parish, for example you could have  small number available  for visitors and people who are learning English - if you do this, make sure you let people know where to find the cards.

Use the PDF version if you want a file that prints exactly as it looks on screen .   Or use the  Microsoft Word version if you want to change the contents and / or pictures. 

Each item is numbered, to make it easier for teachers to tell students which prayer to look at.

Small pictures are used to reinforce what is happening at around that time during the Mass, and to keep the leaflets more visually engaging.

If the front-page is printed on one colour paper, and the back page is printed in another colour, then teachers can tell at a glance if the correct page is being used.

A half-page size booket-format sheet is also available, for use when a full-size sheet is not needed, eg at home.
